Anxiety: Becoming a Non-Anxious Person in a World of Hurry and Hurt


This course draws on ancient wisdom, modern brain science, and decades of case studies. It is designed to equip you to understand 1. the sources of your anxiety, 2. what is happening in your brain and body when you feel anxious, and 3. the most effective and proven ways to deal with anxiety and reduce stress.

These lessons strike a dynamic balance in bringing psychology and theology together in a way that is relevant to people struggling with anxiety in our broken, stressful world.

Joe Bishop, who has over 35 years of experience in pastoral counseling, teaches this course. The format includes audio lessons and PDF’s with guides to personal application, reflection, and enhanced learning.
